One of the requirements of Triple Threat is the ability to shoot from this position. Usually after I beat a guy with a blow-by move from triple threat, the defender will overplay the drive. This is when I use a solid jab step to free some space, then I pull up and drill the J in their eye. Once this is done, the defender is at your mercy. You can use shot-fakes, blow-by's, jab-n-pops. He really can't do anything with you if you can comfortably shoot from this position, so put in the work necessary. I can't emphasize this enough.
